Adam Lambert’s Idol Feast – Play that Funky Music
“Because he is a pumpkin pie of a person” — Quotes about Adam from TWOP’s “Jacob”. Reposted by Gypsy Scribbles, These are so vivid and entertaining, they just called out to be combined with the performance videos for a multimedia journey back down this beloved memory lane.
And Adam, will he be doing something totally fucked up? Oh yes. “Play That Funky Music,” of course. Like he’s in a musical about funky white people, with one hand on his squirrel, making strange plosive sounds with his mouth, twirling on the stage, twisting the time signature around and around like it’s stuck in a Topsy Tail, screaming on his knees he will sing it. It’s kind of like church, if church were a discotheque full of snakes. At the end he is so out of control he’s like WOOOOO! Not of his own volition, and Paula is actually on her stomach wriggling toward him.
Paula gives a wild speech comparing him to Jagger and Tyler, Simon calls him “brave” and a welcome antidote to the bullshit preceding, and they agree he was clearly having the time of his life. I like it when Adam has a good time, because it makes everybody in the room go absolutely shit-hot nuts, which is exciting. He praises the band and their overwhelming arrangement, and then Kara says she — like all of us — pretty much waits for this show to get to the Adam part to see what the fuck he’s going to pull. Then she compares it to Studio 57, which is I think like Studio 54 but with 57 separate ingredients, like a delicious condiment that perhaps you would like to eat with some french fries. The three extra ingredients are even more gayness, mindbending WTF, and technically keeping the pants on. Studio 54 is kind of like church with snakes, actually. Kara and me, sometimes it’s like this, but we usually get back to this pretty quick. Ryan says something that makes Adam laugh about how he needs to loosen up, and then tries to climb inside his jacket.
